Islamabad, Sept 21 (ANI): In a provocative move, Pakistan has said that instead of thinking over cosmetic measures for the solution of the Kashmir issue, India should revisit its policy of trying to resolve it under its constitution.

Foreign Office Spokesman Abdul Basit went further to the extent of saying that India should review its practice of calling Kashmir an integral part of the country.

Basit, talking to a private channel, said that it was a matter of concern for all that over one hundred Kashmiri people had died during the last three months, The News reported.

"We are very much concerned with the situation and we understand that this issue cannot be solved through the use of force," he added.

The Indians should quit the policy of finding Kashmir solution under their constitution, and should review the practice of calling Kashmir as integral part of India, Basit said.

Commenting on the Indian response to Pakistan Foreign Minister's statement, he pointed out that it bore no significance, as it was merely a repetition of India's demonstrated stance.

Calling the issue of Kashmir an international issue having a number of UN resolutions over it, Basit stated that India had committed at the UN to hold a plebiscite in the region, in order to know the will of Kashmiri people, he said.

Basit also stated that though India had always been denying the UN resolutions and commitments at the world forum, but the Kashmiri people were committed to get their legitimate rights.

India had used almost all options to suppress the struggle of Kashmiris during the past six decades but in vain, Basit claimed, adding that now, the time had come for Indians to think rationally for regional and global peace. (ANI)
